When you get a traffic ticket in Florida for improper or excessive lane changing you don't just have a fine to pay, your driving record will be penalized by 3 points. If you just pay the fine, you are admitting to guilt and the points will affect your insurance rates. You can choose to appear in court to contest the ticket, but without an attorney experienced in traffic offenses to represent you there's no guarantee you will win. In order to present the best case possible to a judge, it is best to have an attorney who can help you gather and present all your evidence and testimony in a convincing and logical manner. Good legal representation can greatly improve the chances of getting a decision in your favor.
The first thing to do is speak to a Tampa traffic offenses lawyer at the offices of Taracks & Associates.

Depending on the details of your traffic ticket and your past driving record, besides paying a fine and getting points on your record, there are other penalties you may be subject to.
